Government must give bold hydrogen scheme the go-ahead, says UNISON
Converting homes and businesses to run on hydrogen rather than natural gas could help substantially reduce the UK’s carbon emissions, create thousands of new jobs and provide a much welcome boost to the economy, says UNISON today (Friday).

This sets out plans for how millions of homes and thousands of firms could start being converted to hydrogen from 2028.

Those ‘limited circumstances’ include an “immigration health surcharge” for people from outside Europe coming to live and work in the UK on a temporary visa. From December, this will mean paying £400 per person, for e...

These bodyweight trends mean that most health experts are focused on helping people lose weight to avoid disease.
